“Lily has been very active with my foundation, A Boy and His Dream in the last several months. I was in need of a Website Design and without hesitation, Lily Burns donated her expertise to my foundation.
Her work is superior and had we had to pay for her services, we would not have been able to afford the price, as the quality and integrity of her work would be rated, that of the top elite.
Lily, has worked on several projects for our Foundation, one was recently for our email blast creation to Chicago Bulls games through a portal she helped create for home Chicago games. We had our Scholarship Drive and Advertisements which Lily has helped in creating the graphics for our entire program. We use these type inserts as documentaries for our Foundation.
Our other recent project were captured and illustrated through her strategic lay out of events through our speaking engagements, travel, and interactions with all that we meet. Her designs are clean crisp and precise . We have received many hits on social media platform from the expertly displaced web design.
Lily Burns, is a woman of integrity and recently accepted a position as a volunteer Board Member with our Foundation, A Boy and His Dream Foundation.
She will be an asset to any endeavor that she takes on as her work speaks for itself.”

Blossom’s Colorful Array of Skills & Experience
I’m a small business owner, like you, facing many of the challenges and dilemmas and likely have similar experiences and goals.
I am exceedingly passionate about what I do and providing creative, innovative, quality, and consistent products, services, marketing, and events with efficient out-of-the-box thinking, an eye for detail, and both time and money-saving alternatives for my clients. I work primarily with women, as I feel the connection and drive to help them as individuals find empowerment, happiness, and success!
I get to know YOU as an individual, person to person. You will not be a client of a big agency assigned to develop the ‘right’ business from their perspective. I’ll be working with you to develop the business YOU envision, what is ‘right’ for YOU.
What Makes BLOSSOM the Right Pick for You?
I’m confident, because of my experience with practitioners and small business owners at various stages of business development, I can be of great benefit to you and your business!

BLOSSOM Dreams by Design provides full-spectrum business services. Examples of those are described here.
FIRST IMPRESSION HAS THE GREATEST IMPACT
Your logo, colors, fonts, and illustration are powerful expressions of your business identity and professional credibility.
Your company needs to establish a strong presence in the marketplace to stand out from competitors. A cohesive, unique and pleasing identity will set you apart with an easily recognizable and expressive ‘personality’.
The consistent design of a company identity reflects the essence, culture, principles, and future ambitions. A customer-oriented ‘personality’ helps to achieve client loyalty.
It’s human nature for consumers to apply personal experiences to a company’s identity. Therefore, identity with a strong and positive impact, creates a favorable mental image of the business in the consumer’s mind.
Appeal and consistency are keys to identity success!
BLOSSOM takes the time to talk with you, personally, to research whatever current presence you have online and listen to the ‘feeling’ behind your vision and goals.
By doing so, an identity for your business evolves which strongly resonates with you!
This company identity will be the driving force motivating and guiding you as the framework to operate your business.
*** It is essential for small business owners to understand the connection and importance of your company identity to the creation of the logo, branding, website design, social media presence, and marketing (online and print).
YOUR WEBSITE IS A REFLECTION OF YOUR BUSINESS
Online presence is one of the most valuable tools your business will possess.
Any established and/or startup business, regardless of the industry, location, products or services, will eventually need to establish an online presence.
Small businesses and Wellness practitioners have the added challenge to reflect a professional, personable, clean, and friendly representation to potential clients.
Within the Wellness Industry are numerous modalities. Within each modality are countless practitioners with unique styles. BLOSSOM is very attuned to this, and will work with you to develop a design resonating with you and your desired clientele.

A COHESIVE ONLINE PRESENCE HAS SUBSTANTIAL POSITIVE EFFECT
Successful small businesses cover each compartment of online presence.
— Social Media
Providing a full-spectrum of services, BLOSSOM ensures a clear vision and focused online visibility for your unique small business.
During BLOSSOM’s 10 years, I have experienced the evolution of social media and its impact on business success.
∗ 97% of consumers search online for products and services
∗ 91% have visited a business because of their online experience
∗ 88% have been influenced by an online review
In order to reach 50 million people it took:
∗ 75 years for the phone
∗ 38 years for radio
∗ 13 years for television
∗ 3 ½ years for Facebook
∗ Currently 1 billion active users per month on YouTube!
Integrating your branding across all appropriate social platforms, I develop cover and profile images, a social sharing strategy, and numerous techniques to broaden and focus your brand promotion.
Remembering ‘Consistency is Key’, I apply those same brand elements to your online newsletters, event promotions (such as workshops or retreats), digital products, and online stores/purchases.
Working with you, BLOSSOM will solidify a clear vision. Clever research, creative solutions and quality design establishes a strong online presence for your business in all areas.
SMALL BUSINESSES RELY ON MEMORABLE, CONSISTENT BRANDING & MARKETING
Consistent design and presentation of a company’s identity reflects the essence, ethics, culture, principles, and future ambitions.
Using the best standards for design and print, along with a passion for intuitive design and my strong attention to detail, I embrace my mind’s creative sparks.
I delight in developing clear and consistent branding and marketing to assure visibility and public awareness of a cohesive, unique, and pleasing identity to set you apart with an easily recognizable, expressive ‘personality’.
This visible ‘personality’ is more likely to develop loyalty to the business when customer-oriented.
I highly encourage small business owners to consistently brand everything! Often forgotten are the various client forms and documents. Intake or registration forms are often the first tangible representation of your business/practice that your clients will experience.
It’s my intention to create a crisp, professional, welcoming, and uncluttered impression which establishes your branding and an undaunting introduction to your business.
Other Print Materials Include, but Not Limited to:
Door & Vehicle Signage
Magazine & Newspaper Ads
Make your presence known and eye-catching everywhere! BLOSSOM’s creative sparks are certain to make it POP!
PLANNING, ORGANIZING, MANAGING
Little Details Make a Big Difference
Operating a small business/practice often includes hosting events. It can be overwhelming to manage your practice and reach out to new clients, while having numerous details for an upcoming event looming.
Whether it be an Open House, formal book-signing, workshop, or retreat abroad, there are a multitude of tasks to be done.
Personally and professionally, I love the intricacies and numerous details and organization needed for an event, and in taking care of those items that might otherwise have been done at the eleventh hour or forgotten altogether.
I’ve been the ‘go to’ person for arranging everything from large family dinners, receptions, showers, birthday parties and more, since before I was old enough to partake in some of these events!
- Making lists
- Devising innovative cost-effective solutions to large projects
- Gathering supplies and decor
- Brainstorming to establish schedules, and
- Developing, branding and formatting the necessary documents, waivers and forms for a long-distance retreat
— the many details and tasks I thrive on! And, with every event, the results are complete, successful and much appreciated by all.
HARMONIZING TIME & SUCCESS
I began my business on a leap of faith (in myself and what I could offer), and with passion, perseverance, and ability to self-teach, create, and follow-through with my goals.
From day one of BLOSSOM, I have articulated every detail, skill-set, service, innovative idea, and every word of content. I’ve assimilated input from numerous sources and experiences to create a flourishing, healthy, reliable and rewarding means to help others have similar success.
Through the many years of operating my own business, I’ve had a fierce appetite for researching, learning and creating!
This has led to the significant growth and expansion of BLOSSOM, and it’s had tremendous positive impact on the businesses I’ve worked with.
As a persistent and quick self-taught business owner, graphic and web designer, and highly detail-oriented, organized individual, I continually expand and transform BLOSSOM successfully, along with an abundance of other amazing businesses.
I’m truly honored to have been entrusted to work with such delightful individuals and their phenomenal businesses.
I thrive in environments where I can use my strong communication, organization, and creative skills in helping others. This provides an outlet for the creative sparks constantly firing in my mind, while bringing calm from chaos to the business and business owner.
“Having Lily’s help with your startup business is like having your very own ‘genie from a bottle’…
except, you get many more than three wishes!
* This or that needs to get done? Lily can do it.
* Thousand details; unsure of priorities? Lily helps set priorities & cover the details!
* Not sure what to do about this or that? Lily can make suggestions.
